The Xbox One’s launch line-up may be a veritable mixed bag with some recommends (Forza Motorsport 5), duds (Ryse: Son of Rome) and middleweights (Dead Rising 3, Corportate VP of Microsoft Games Studios Phil Spencer feels confident in the post-launch line-up of games to arrive.

Speaking to Polygon, Spencer stated that, “Rolling into the next holiday, we haven’t announced everything that’s coming yet. But that lineup from first party also looks strong. I don’t mind saying that on 360, I think we had a gap. We had our launch lineup … and a couple Japanese games, but in that first half of the following year, we were a little dry from a first-party standpoint.

“But I look at the next 18 to 24 months, and really on a month by month basis, you’re going to have something you can go out and play. It’s not really a portfolio plan that way, but when I look at the way the portfolio is laying out…I think people are going to be happy with the lineup that’s coming. And I haven’t even mentioned when Halo is coming or some of the big mega franchises.”

This gives credence to estimates that the next Halo won’t be out till 2015, but what are those other “big mega franchises”? Perhaps a new Gears of War? We’ll find out in the coming months. The Xbox One will launch tomorrow across 13 territories worldwide.
